Dimitar Glavchev, President of the Bulgarian National Assembly addressed the MPs from Serbia’s Narodna Skupština (National Assembly), expressing his gratitude for the honour accorded him of being the first Bulgarian politician to speak in the plenary hall of Serbia’s parliament.

“I take it as a clear token of the importance of the relations between the two countries,” he said. Glavchev pointed out that Bulgaria welcomes Serbia’s policy of recent years with regard to national minorities, adding that today Bulgaria and Serbia share a common interest in effectively implementing the prescribed rights of the Bulgarian national minority. The two countries share a concern about the economic state of the border municipalities and are looking for solutions together.

“We must also work, together, towards the development of Bosilegrad – a municipality with a predominantly Bulgarian population,” Dimitar Glavchev said.
